Please join us as we work to make a great community even better! The Richland Community Development Group is a true grass roots movement that has impacted our county in many positive ways. Hundreds of volunteers have taken the future of our county into their own hands completing projects as diverse as creating a "hands on" children's museum to a local producers guide to beautifying our gateways. Action teams with websites or pages are noted below.  Please contact them directly if you want to get engaged.  Contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
